2 LETTER TO DONORS IMTIAZ MANJI CEO Spear Education & Winter Laboratory OWF Co-Chairman/ Founder GLEN WYSEL Partner S pear Education OWF Co-Chairman/ Founder LISA WYSEL OWF Secretary/ Founder EXECUTIVE BOARD FRANK SPEAR Founder & Director Spear Education PAUL GUGENHEIM President Patterson Dental HONORARY BOARD COMMITTEE CHAIRS Dear Open Wide Foundation Donor, On behalf of myself and the Open Wide Foundation Board of Directors I would like to thank you for your commitment to bringing health and hope to communities in need. Your support means a great deal to us; together were not only providing critically needed dental care, we are creating a new platform for long-term and sustainable change in the oral health of underserved communities worldwide. Our goal was simple: to provide quality care to people who need it most desperately. In our 2012 inaugural year, over 150 dental volunteers donated their time in our first OWF clinic in Peronia Guatemala. The clinic has served over 3000 patients and performed over 1.7 million dollars in dental services. In addition to providing patient care, we have partnered with local Guatemalan private and public universities to join us on-site. Guided by the experienced hands of our Open Wide dentist volunteers, we have provided hands-on experience, mentoring and training to many young Guatemalan dental students. OWF has also trained local practicing dentists and our on-site clinic staff in office procedures, clinic management and patient care. Within a five-year period, our goal is to turn the Peronia Clinic over to the local community while we go on to replicate this model in other underserved areas. What better gift to give than sustained oral health for generations to come? Thank you for opening your hearts and calendars to make this amazing project get off to a tremendous inaugural year.
